Ruger Mini14 will probably be the cheapest route.

I personally would stay away from the Mini 14. They are neat, but not as accurate as an AR.

Check CDNN sports. They had new M&P 15's for 6-700.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

The new minis are accurate but the factory mags are 4 or 5 times the price of ar mags

How accurate?

Re: looking to a semi auto .223....what do I get ??

minis can only use ruger mags. i dont like that. that is why i went to the gun shop and got a DPMS Sportical AR, and im not looking back. you can build a AR decently cheap.

my vote is AR, lots more possibilites!!!!!

Should I shoot? I don't care, im not the one holding the gun, if it was me, we'd be skinning by now.

I like my Saiga, shoots as good as I do and now have 30 rs. mags.
